Lucky you. I have tried setting hw.cbb.start_memory=0xd8000, but it does not
seem to make any difference. I guess there are subtle differences between the
ThinkPad 600 and 600X. I already spent hours of googling to find a solution
to this problem, but all I could find out, is that other OSes like Linux or
NetBSD have had similar problems on this hardware. Not sure if they managed to
fix it though. Surprisingly Windows has no problem with that machine, even
running with ACPI HAL at all, apart from being *slow* :)

Keep it icy man.
